Coronavirus continues to wreak havoc in the country. In the new wave of Corona, the rate of increase of new cases of infection is very high. As the corona cases increase, the chain of deaths continues. The Election Commission has decided to postpone the upcoming elections in the three constituencies of Bengal and Odisha, in view of the continuous increase in corona cases. Elections in Odisha’s Pipli along with Murshidabad constituencies – Shamsherganj and Jangipur – have been postponed until further notice in Bengal.
In the directive issued by the Election Commission, it has been said that in view of the Kovid epidemic, it has been decided to postpone voting in these two assembly constituencies. Now a new notification will be released later. Let us know that the Election Commission had announced to hold voting in the Jangipur and Shamsherganj assembly on May 16. Even before the fifth phase of voting, candidates in both these seats had died from Corona. The total number of assembly seats in Bengal is 294, but only 292 seats have been voted.
